Plot Summary

Big Enos and Little Enos have opened a seafood restaurant and want to promote it in their usual fashion. The Bandit is unavailable this time, though, so they enlist Buford. "Trigger" is brought out of mothballs, a large fish is strapped to the roof of the car, and the new Bandit is on his way on another wild cross-country run. But where there is the Bandit, there is Sheriff Buford T. Justice. Written by Jason A. Cormier

Did You Know?

Trivia Originally titled "Smokey and the Bandit Part 3: Smokey Is The Bandit", with Jackie Gleason playing both Sheriff Justice and The Bandit. Test audiences disliked seeing Gleason as The Bandit and parts of the film were re-shot with Jerry Reed reprising his role of Cledus who was now the new "Bandit". Gleason's scenes as The Bandit have never surfaced but one publicity still of Gleason dressed as The Bandit has been found. Reportedly, Gleason said at this early time: "This picture is much better than the other two 'Smokeys'. There are more laughs. I write everything I do, but I don't take any screen credit - just the money." See more »
Goofs As the "Bandit" and Buford drive into the stunt show, the sign outside the gate says "Mississippi State Fair". The next scene shows that they are actually on the racetrack at Hialeah Speedway in Hialeah Florida. See more »
